It fell today in the international stock markets, but the Board just increased

If the price of oil on international exchanges is at least 6 dollars per barrel (in England), in our country the price of oil has just increased by 6 lek per liter.

From today, oil will be sold at 227 Lek per liter, from 221 Lek/liter on August 11. Meanwhile, the price of gasoline has been reduced by only 1 lek, while that of gas has been reduced by two lek.

The Transparency Board, which published today the decision on the new fuel prices that come into effect from 18:00 today at every retail point, tries to clarify the non-reflection of the values ??in the international stock exchanges in our country.

According to this institution specially established for the control of fuel prices in the domestic market, the basis for calculating the new sales values ??of products is only the International Agency "S&P Global Platts".

The board also announces that the exchange rate of the lek with the US dollar has an impact on the new prices set for fuels in Albania.

The Transparency Board's full announcement:

The retail price of the gasoil by-product of the SSH EN 590 standard should be no more than 227 ALL/liter, while the wholesale price no more than 215 ALL/liter.

The retail price of the SSH EN standard gasoline by-product should be no more than 201 ALL/liter, while the wholesale price no more than 189 ALL/liter.

The retail price of the gas by-product should be 78 ALL/liter retail and 66 ALL/liter wholesale for vehicles.

(Note: the selling price for liquefied gas for vehicles will be the supply price at the supply stations at gas stations, while at other points for household and industrial consumers the price should not include the excise duty).

The prices set by the Board will come into force today, August 17 at 18.00 pm and will be valid until the next meeting of the Board where the changes in the sales prices will be reflected.

The Board clarifies the public opinion that it applies with due care the normative act in force, aiming at the protection of consumers in these conditions of the world crisis and the instability of the prices of oil by-products.

Board Clarification:

I. Çdo referencë mbi uljen apo rritjen e çmimit të naftës bruto në tregjet ndërkombëtare, nuk impakton në të njëjtën mënyrë dhe në të njëjtën kohë bursën e nënprodukteve gazoil, benzinë. Për të informuar drejt dhe pa shtrembërime opinionin publik, media dhe faktorët e ndryshëm politikë dhe jopolitikë duhet t’i referohen të dhënave zyrtare të Agjencisë Ndërkombëtare “S&P Global Platts” në USD, për bursën e Mesdheut. Administrata Doganore është orientuar që të bëjë publik informacionin mbi lëvizjet e kësaj burse me qëllim që askush të mos shtrembërojë realitetin dhe të abuzojë me informacionin.

II.Nga Vendimi i fundit i Bordit Nr. 45, Prot, datë 11.8.2022, i cili i referohet të dhënave zyrtare të Agjencisë ndërkombëtare “S&P Global Platts” në USD të datës 10.8.2022, lëvizja e çmimeve ka qënë si vijon:

Date 11.08.2022: Gasoline 10 ppm +29 USD/ton; Gasoil 10ppm +42 USD/ton

Date 12.08.2022: Gasoline 10 ppm + 6 USD/ton; Gasoil 10ppm + 66 USD/ton

Date 15.08.2022: Gasoline 10 ppm - 5 USD/ton; Gasoil 10ppm + 41 USD/ton

Date 16.08.2022: Gasoline 10 ppm -20 USD/ton; Gasoil 10ppm +40 USD/ton

III. The LEK/USD exchange rate, which also impacts the final fuel price, has increased by +1.42 lek, compared to the official exchange rate used at the last Board meeting.

So, despite the fact that the prices in the stock market have tended to increase, in the last week, the Board has not taken an immediate decision on the increase in the price of by-products.
